Bruhat Order on the Involutions of Classical Weyl Groups

  title={Bruhat Order on the Involutions of Classical Weyl Groups},
  author={Federico Incitti}
It is known that a Coxeter group W , partially ordered by the Bruhat order, is a graded poset, with rank function given by the length, and that it is EL-shellable, hence CohenMacaulay, and Eulerian. In this work we consider the subposet of W induced by the set of involutions of W , denoted by Invol(W ). Our main result is that, if W is a classical Weyl group, then the poset Invol(W ) is graded, with rank function given by the average between the length and the absolute length, and that it is EL… CONTINUE READING
